A Mystery and a stupidity

Thanks to Becky's SAT I can show a good progress on my Celtic Mystery. I stitched six hours fridaynight, so I could really see the difference! I hope to catch up this way, so I can start my MMIRR in January.

Saturdaymorning when I got up, the first snow was there! It wasn't that much, but yet, it is the first snow of this winter. Today in other parts of the country, there seems to be heavy snowfall.

The afternoon I spent shopping. It is soon Sinterklaas, so I need to get some presents for the children and DH.
As for today I finished the Christmas Ornie, the one my children kept me from sending on an exchange. It is almost perfect! I used the backing fabric Edgar sent me, and it matched perfectly. So I was so satisfied with myself.... until I saw what I had done. How could I be so stupid, me, a librarian, reading upside down?
There 's only one advantage: if I put it somewhere against the wall, like I did on the first picture, you don't notice my mistake, but then, you don't notice the perfect backing fabric either ....

One of the groups I'm in organized a 'wishmarket', and one of my wishes was to receive pins. And I got them! One of the girls sent me homemade pins, so lovely!

And another girl sent me these. I can sure use them!

Oh Joke! That is just the kind of thing I would do. You have a beautifully finished, wonderfully stitched ornament. And no one else will have one like it, you should show it off with pride!

Laura said...

LOL! Your finishing mistake is something that I would do also...for sure. It is beautiful, though, and I would display it with pride. Just act as though that is the way it is supposed to be :)

Nice progress on your stitching. It will be a very pretty piece when it is finished. Oh my! Your flat fold, looks like something I would do. The pins are beautiful.

LOL, it still looks lovely - love your Celtic Chatelaine too. We had about that much snow too last weekend,but it soon melted, much to the children's disappointment.

It is still a beautifully finished ornie. Love your Celtic Mystery, it is progressing very well.


Donna said...

I did the same thing. On a Thanksgiving piece I did. But the ornie is beautiful!

Mare said...

Nice finish & frankly your lovely stitched piece will distract everyone from noticing the boo boo. Great work on your wip & I love pins, doesn't everyone?

The trees on your Celtic piece are sooo beautiful! Love the colors!
I also think your finished flatfold is beautifully finished!
